Mademoiselle Chanel: The beginning of a beauty empire
“If you’re sad, if you are disappointed in love, put on your makeup, give yourself some beauty care, put on lipstick, and attack!”
That was probably one of the reasons why Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel decided to launch a cosmetics line. In doing so, she not only revolutinized the Chanel brand, but the entire fashion world. Her journey into the beauty world started with a perfume. The world-renowned fragrance No.5 was the start of a journey of success that continues to this day. No end in sight! See for yourself!
Mademoiselle Chanel: Perfume & Co.
Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel is considered the extraordinary, remarkable woman who revolutionized the fashion world. She first put the focus on comfort and functionality. The independence that her clothes radiated made the luxury label irresistible from the moment of its birth. Mademoiselle Chanel was born in 1883 in a small French trading town. She spent her teenage years in a nun’s orphanage, where she also learned the trade of seamstress.
After a job as a saleswoman, curiosity and lust for life drive her to the city. The fashion metropolis of Paris is to become the birthplace of Chanel. In 1919, with the help of her partner Arthur “Boy” Capel, she is able to open her first boutique. What starts out as a hat shop on Rue Cambon turns into one of the most iconic and successful fashion houses in fashion history. A luxury label that, in addition to its stunning collections, also shines with its makeup, cosmetics & perfume lines. See for yourself!
Coco Chanel conquers the world with perfume No.5
1921 – A year that turns the perfume world upside down. The perfume No.5 by Coco Chanel is born. A timeless classic, which is a symbol of femininity and elegance. The perfume quickly establishes itself as the fragrance for which customers queue for hours. Perfumer Ernest Beaux is the mastermind behind this stunning fragrance. Coco Chanel’s intention was the following:
“The woman has to smell like a woman, and not like a rose!”
To get one step closer to her goal, she decides to use a blend of 80 different natural and synthetic ingredients. Ernest Beaux presents her with a wide range of fragrance combinations, and she chooses number 5. And the name of the iconic perfume is born!
“I show my collections on the fifth of May, the fifth month of the year, so let’s leave the number it bears, and this number will bring it good luck!”
Coco Chanel’s lucky number more than lived up to its reputation. The fragrance bouquet enchants with a blend of jasmine, ylang-ylang, may rose & sandalwood notes and a generous dose of aldehydes. Its unmistakable “clean” scent, reminiscent of fresh laundry, continues to delight the entire fashion world.
Chanel cosmetics line: lipstick, eye shadow and co.
1924 – Mademoiselle Chanel goes further and further into the beauty world. In 1924 she launches the first make-up collection, which includes lipsticks and face powders. In the same year, the “Société des parfums Chanel” was founded. A company dedicated to the creation of unique perfumes and beauty products.

“Fragrances are something intangible and yet they have a lot to do with craft!”

Before taking over the post of Chanel’s in-house perfumer in 2015, his father Jacques Polge had been doing the job for 37 years. Under the direction of Olivier Polge, the concept of Chanel perfumes continues. Fragrances by Chanel never embody just one flower, but always a bouquet. Here, the focus is primarily on white blossoms. Following Olivier Polge explains why his heart beats for perfumes and what is behind the phenomenon of No.5!
